TRACK MY ASSETS
Track IoT devices with the AXON Platform®
It’s 10am, Do You Know Where Your Dog Is?
Asset tracking with AXON Platform for Mobile extends the IoT beyond the smart home and into the real world, enabling you to manage your things remotely across existing cellular networks. Greenwave’s Track My Assets’ solution can be used in any number of ways, leveraging AXON Platform for Mobile to track all manner of items from expensive equipment and tools, to trucks, cars, bicycles, pets, and luggage.
Greenwave tracking devices use Global Positioning Systems (GPS) to determine and track precise location. The unit transmits to a central location database using an embedded LTE radio and allows the asset’s location to be displayed against a map backdrop, either in real time or when analyzing movement at a later time using Greenwave’s Track My Assets software.
The Greenwave Track My Assets solution consists of these main elements:
- LTE-enabled tracking tag with GPS
- An IoT cloud service with unique control capabilities
- A customer service web portal
- A mobile app
Track My Assets IoT Use Cases
The Concerned Parent – Anna is traveling to Paris with her 4-year-old daughter Emma where they encounter large crowds upon arrival at the airport. For peace of mind, Anna decides to rent two tracking tags at a newspaper kiosk to help on their trip – the cost is only $10 for the week. Anna attaches the tracking tag to Emma’s pants and she installs the tracking app on her phone. Anna is reassured knowing it will be much easier to find Emma if she should wander out of sight.
After settling in at the hotel, they take a walk through the Jarden des Tuileries. Anna decides to buy Emma an ice cream. When she turns around to hand Emma the treat, Anna suddenly realizes that she’s gone. Anna grabs for her phone and opens the tracking app. Within a few seconds she can see that Emma is 100m away to the east. She runs towards Emma and finds her at the playground happily awaiting a turn at the slide. Crisis averted.
The Dog Owner- Luke and his beloved dog, Duke often exercise 2-3 times per week at a recreation area. Duke is generally well-behaved and follows Lucas as they jog along the pathway. However, on a recent visit to the park Duke gets distracted by some rustling in the woods and by the time Lucas notices he’s missing, the dog is nowhere to be found. Lucas opens the tracking app on his phone to locate Duke, who has a tracking tag attached to his collar. Duke is shown to be wandering 1km in the opposite direction. Lucas activates the continuous-tracking option. After 10 minutes of following a trail shown on the app, Lucas catches up with Duke who is stalking some deer. Lucas puts Duke on his leash and they head for the car. Crisis averted.
